We have little transmitted to us concerning the 
life of Theocritus ; and this little is involved in 
contradiction, and obscured by conjecture. Even 
his age and country have been the subjects of 
controversy with grammarians and commentators. 
The relations of Suidast and Gyraldus, among 
others, are strangely confused and indeterminate. 

* Abridged from Polwhele's Dissertation. 

t We are told by Suidas, that Theocritus was a Chian, and a 
rhetorician ; but that there was another Theocritus', the son of 
Praxagoras andPhilinna, though some say of Simichidas, a Syra- 
cusian. Others say '^ he was born at Cos, but lived at Syra- 
cuse." Another Greek account, usually prefixed to our poet's 
works, asserts that " Theocritus the Bucolic poet was born at 
Syracuse," and that his <* father's name wad Simichidas." Gy- 
raldus says, " some have thought him of Cos, some of Chios/' 

A3 ( 


But from his own works we might extract enough 
to convince us, that he was a Syracusian ; that 
Praxagoras and Philinna were his parents; and 
that he flourished under Hiero and Ptolemy Phil- 
adelphus, both in Sicily and in Egypt. Of the 
former, his twenty-second Epigram is a sufficient 
testimony* ; and of the latter, his two famous pane- 
gyrical Idyls. From the Commentator on Poly- 
bius we learn that Hiero, the King of Syracuse, 
began his reign about 275 years before the Chris- 
tian sera^t 

* This Epigram is inserted in this edition, on the back of the 
titlepage. The chief object of the poet in writing it, though 
perhaps it may not appear at first sight, was, no doubt, to take 
all possible precaution to be distinguished from the rhetorician 
of the same name. The last verse of the Epigram is an honest 
declaration, that the poet had not been a plagiary, like many of 
his predecessors and contemporaries. In the poem called Ibis, 
attributed to Ovid, we find this distich : << Utque Syracosio 
praestricta fauce poetae. Sic animse laqueo sit via clausa tuae/' 
Some commentators on this passage suppose Empedocles, who 
was a poet and philosopher of Sicily, to have been the person 
pointed at : others think that Ovid, by mistake, might have 
confounded Theocritus the rhetorician of Chios, who was also a 
poet, with Theocritus of Syracuse ; for the former, as Plutarch 
(Sympos. book ii.) and Macrobius (Saturn, vii. 3.) testify, was 
really executed by Antigonus, for being unseasonably and im- 
prudently witty at that monarch's expense, 

f Though the exploits of Hiero the First are recorded greatly 
to his advantage by Polybius, in the second book of his History ; 
though' he had many virtues, had frequently signalised his 
courage and conduct^ and distinguished himself by several 


!, As our poet seems to have been dissatisfied with 
the cold attentions of the Syracusian monarch, who 
was more distinguished in the character of a war- 
ridr than a patron of learning, we may attribute 
to this circumstance his departure from Sicily into 
iEgypt : the court of Alexandria was the nurse of 
the Muses. It is rather remarkable that we know 
scarcely any thing of Theocritus, but what may be 
gathered from himself. Independently of this in- 
ternal evidence, we might determine the place of 
his birth, from the allusions of his imitator Virgil •, 

achievements in war, yet he seems, at least in the early part of 
his reign, not to have expressed any great affection for learning, 
or learned men. This is supposed to have given occasion to 
the sixteenth Idyl, inscribed with the name of Hiero ; where 
the poet asserts- the dignity of his profession, complains that it 
met neither with favour nor protection, and in a very artful 
manner touches upon the virtues of this prince, and insinuates 
what an illustrious figure he would have made in poetry, had he 
been as noble a patron as he was a subject for the Muses. 

In his voyage to Egypt he touched at Cos, an island in the 
Archipelago, not far from Rhodes, where he was honourably 
entertained by Phrasidamus and Antigenes, who invited him 
into the country to celebrate the festival of Ceres. See 
Idyl vii. 

* Virgil. Eel. iv. 1. : " Sicelides Musae, paulo majora cana- 
mus." Eel. vi. 1. : " Prima Syracosio dignata est ludere versu 
Nostra, neque erubuit sylvas habitare Thalia." Eel. x, 1,: 
" Extremum hunc, Arethusa, mihi concede laborem." He is 
called " a Sicilian poet " by the Emperor Julian ; " Siculse 
telluris alumnus," by Terentianus Maurus, de Metris, vs. 407. ; 
and is said to be <' Sicula tellure creatus, " by Manilius, ii.40. 


and the casual intimations of Julian, Terentianu3 
Maurus, and Manilius. But here our views are 
circumscribed ; and we vainly look around us for a 
detail of his life.* 

As a pastoral writer, he found every advantage 
in the delicious climate and luxuriant landscapes of 
Sicily, No country could have presented him 
with a more beautiful assemblage of rural images. 
The picturesque scenery of the hills and the valleys, 
diversified beyond description ; an almost infinite 
variety of trees and shrubs ; the grottoes, precipices, 
and fountains, of the most romantic appearance ; 
and the sweetness and serenity of the skies ; all 
these concurred with the tranquillity of retirement 
in awakening the Muse, and inspiring the Pastoral 

The pieces of Theocritus are the result of his 
own accurate observation. He described what he 
saw and felt. His characters, as well as his scenes, 
are the immediate transcript of nature. We may 

* Theocritus is said to have been the scholar of Philetas and 
Asclepiades, or Sicelidas. Philetas was an elegiac poet, of the 
island of Cos, had the honour to be preceptor to Ptolemy Phila- 
delphus, and is celebrated by Ovid and Propertius. The latter 
was an imitator of his writings, as we learn from himself, iii. 1. ].: 
" Callimachi manes et Coi sacra Philetae, In vestrum, quaeso, 
me sinite ire nemus." Sicelidas was a Samian, and a writer of 
Epigrams. Theocritus mentions both of these with honour, Idyl 
vii. 40. 


well imagine, that the shepherds and the herdsmen, 
surrounded by their flocks and their cattle, piped 
before him the current songs of the times j and 
that he was frequently a witness of their dialogues 
and contentions ; heard their proverbial speeches, 
transcribed their manner, and caught from their 
lips the very vulgarisms which characterise his 
ruder Idyls. Such was the foundation of his Pas- 
torals, original both in matter and form ; the more 
rustic of which were probably composed in the 
earlier part of his life, before he left his native 


island, allured by brighter prospects. 

That he had a very early propensity to this spe- 
cies of composition, and that his genius was origin- 
ally formed for it, in preference to any other, may 
be inferred from his frequent recurrence to the 
woods and plains, in works of a contexture and 
complexion by no means resembling the Pastoral j 
and from the interspersion, indeed, through all his 
productions, of such similes and allusions as are 
evidently the offspring of the country. But his 
genius was not confined to a particular species of 
writing. Though not fervid or bold, it was ver- 
satile and penetrating. The refined age of The- 
ocritus was equally favourable to compositions 
where the fashions and foibles of men are humor- 
ously displayed. Wit can only exist amidst ease 
and security. At a period of high civilisation, 
there arise checquered and complex characters, 


variously shaded by folly, and assuming a diversity 
of transitory shapes. Hence the manners become 
the subject of observation, and afford ample scope 
for the exercise of ridicule. These fleeting traits 
of a civilised people by no means escaped the pe* 
netration of Theocritus. 

But he had not only the opportunities of con- 
templating, in his own country, the beautiful forms 
of nature, and the diversified appearances of life : 
he enjoyed the additional advantages* of travel. 
The prospect of Egyptian manners and customs, 
and pursuits so different from those of Sicily, must 
have enlarged his knowledge of mankind ; and the 
rich and extensive pastures on the banks of the 
Nile have delighted his rural imagination. But, 
during his residence in -^gypt, his genius and his 
taste must have been enlightened and refined by 
the polite conversation of a court, where literature 
was associated with elegance and splendour ; and 
where emulation was excited and cherished by 
princely munificence. And not only the Muses 
flourished under the auspices of a Ptolemy j but 
literature in general was highly cultivated and 

* We have every reason to imagine that he met with a more 
favourable reception at Alexandria, than he had experienced at 
Syracuse, from the encomiums on Ptolemy contained in Idyl xvii., 
where he rises above the pastoral style, and shows that he could, 


The labours of the Seventy Interpreters at the 
Alexandrian court fonn a celebrated epoch m the 
annals of learning. That our poet avaQed himself 
of these labours, and frequently snatched a grace 
from sacred writ, no one will doubt, who peruses 
his most finished pieces with attention. It was 
under the patronage of Ptolemy, that his contem- 
porary bard Callimachus composed those H3rmns 
to his fabled Gods, which evidently borrowed some 
portion of their beauty from the same sources : and 
possibly the more ancient writers of Greece might 
have drawn sentiments and imagery from scripture. 
There is often discoverable in Pindar a spirit of 
oriental grandeur ; and we trace, in many passages 
of Homer, resemblances apparently imitative of 
these divine originals. It is not to be wondered, 
that such elegant enjoyments should have kindled 
the gratitude of our poet ; and have produced that 
panegyric on his royal patron, which, in point of 
animation, delicacy, address, and well appropriated 

on an occasion, as Virgil did afterwards, exalt his Sicilian Muse 
to a sublimer strain. He derives the race of Ptolemy from Her- 
cules ; he enumerates his many cities, describes his great power 
and immense riches, but above all he commemorates his royal 
munificence to the sons of the Muses. Towards the conclusion 
of Idyl xiv. there is a short, but very noble paneg3rric on Pto- 
lemy. In Idyl XV. he celebrates Berenice^ the mother, and 
Arsinoe^ the wife of that prince. 


compliment, may be considered as the first of en- 
comiastic performances. 

These corresponding felicities of genius and situ- 
ation was it the fortune of Theocritus to possess. 
It is to these that we owe his most original and 
interesting works ; though to his perfect acquaint- 
ance with fabulous antiquity we are indebted for 
no mean efiusions of the Heroic Muse ; while his 
other productions, of various character, still further 
evince the versatility of his talents, the extent of 
knowledge, and the elegance of his friendships. 

This great diversity of pieces hath been trans- 
mitted to us, except the Epigrams indeed, under 
the title of Idyls ; a term which, according to its 
general import, is doubtless well applied to a col- 
lection of miscellaneous poems.* Heinsius observes, 
that the ancients gave this title to the poems 
before us, to express their variety. Thus have we 
the Sylvae of Statins, and Edyllia of Ausonius. But 
as eJ8uXX/ov, a diminutive of e?So^, may signify a little 
picture^ or imager it may, in this sense, be applied, 
with peculiar propriety, to the Miscellanies of 
Theocritus ; which are, every where, replete with 
lively and natural representation ; and paint all the 
objects they describe. 

* Besides the Idyls and Epigrams now extant, Tlieocritus is 
said by Suidas to have written Praetides, Hopes, Hymns, 
Heroines, Dirges, Elegies, and Iambics. 


On a general view of the Greek Idyls, their 
dialect is an obvious and striking feature. The 
Doric dialect, in which they are for the most part 
written, was, of all others, best adapted to the sub* 
ject3, the characters, and simplicity of the senti- 
ment. It possesses an inimitable charm, that can 
never be transfused in the most happy translation. 
It hath a modulated sweetness which melts upon 
the ear, at the same time that its wildness and 
rusticity often characterise the personages who use 
it. In the age of Theocritus, this species of the 
Doric, much softer and smoother than the old 
dialect of the Dorians, was current in many parts of 
Greece ; another adventitious circumstance much 
in favour of our Poet. Hence his versification 
derives a melody, which no one of the ancients 
hath equalled ; while the frequent recurrence of 
the dactyl gives it an ease and lightness more pe- 
culiarly graceful in the pastoral Idyls. 

With respect to the general sentiment, there is 
a clearness, a simplicity, a sportive vivacity, that 
must always please : but there are few strokes of 
the sublime ; few fervid aspirations of fancy. There 
is no want of vigour ; yet there is little enthusiasm. 
We, in some instances, meet with a surprising 
thought, with a wonderful degree of animation : 
but though we are often charmed, we are seldom 
astonished. There is always a justness in the com- 
bination J all is natural and appropriated ; but 



there is a regular and equable tenor in the thoughts 
as well as the language. The passions are tenderly 
and simply expressed : the complaints of love are 
drawn from the very bosom of nature; and the 
situations have peculiar beauty. But the soul of 
Theocritus was not tuned to sensibility. He had 
less feeling, though more judgement than Bion. 
From the turn and manner of his composition we 
may infer, that he generally trusts to his own stock 
of ideas, to his own powers of invention.
